Collins Rouse, brother of William, came on in 1818, and settled on an adjoining farm. He married Dolly Sexton, and they had nine children. He was a successful farmer, and was one of the first six men in Orleans who voted the Abolition ticket. He was a man of influence and ability in the community in which he lived, and was a member of the Freewill Baptist Church. Four of his sons are now successful business men in California. His son George was brigade inspector under General Rosencrans, and was killed by a shell. Abner enlisted at the age of 17 years, and was captured in the battle of the Wilderness and starved to death in Libby prison.
The Rouse family was a much respected one in this county.
Died at age 75
